With most RV's the point of shore cable connection has to be accessed from the inside.

The actual shore cable wire connection point varies from one model to another..., but many applications the wires terminate at a junction box close to where the shore cable is coiled (stored), but prior to the converter/charger.

The suggestion that "3'senough" made is a great alternative.

Bigger problems..the entire trailer is now "live ". Using a grounded plug yields zero power, using a non grounded plug makes every metal surface tingle..totally confused and frustrated..ideas?

Did you just replace the male plug end? Did you inspect the entire line for any additional damage? Green = ground to the green screw, Neutral = White to the silver screw and the Black = hot to the black or brass screw. Double check your wiring of the plug end if that is all you did. If more then maybe time to call in an electrician before someone gets hurt. Not a good thing to have a hot skin.

I would not recommend going longer than the factory when you complete repairs.
As stated above it won't all fit and the longer cord causes more amp loss. Lots CG are already amp challenged. Sure sometimes you need a longer cord but use the available ext length cords only when necessary. And as stated above try to place plug where it's hard to get loose and fall out.
I had to pull the trailer up a couple feet a while back so I could clean under it. Asked wife if all was good as I pulled up. Tire rolled over power cord and pulled the plug out of the camper. I was not a happy camper.
As stated above it sounds like your not wired correctly or have a lose wire at the converter.

Since you have to do all this why not make it a plug in cord?(Twist lock) Seems like a good time for the upgrade.

I cringe at the thought of having to replace or cord... the converter is under the fridge on the curb side, over the axles, the cord comes out road side behind the back walk of the shower. It snakes behind the tub surround, around the outside wall, down under the water heater, and into the fridge compartment. I've got 20ft of cord inside the camper!
